Prime Location Buckinghamshire Area Guide

Until a few years ago, Buckinghamshire was one of the UK’s best kept secrets. It's not a big county, and you could easily pass through it on one of the motorways without really noticing its charms. The south flows from the Thames up the rolling slopes of the Chiltern Hills. Steeper terrain then leads to the Vale of Aylesbury, a spacious flat expanse that's home to the winding path of the River Great Ouse. There are four districts: Aylesbury Vale, Chiltern, South Bucks and Wycombe. Tacked onto the northern corner of the county is the Borough of Milton Keynes - Hertfordshire's fifth and ceremonial district.

Buckinghamshire has the longest life expectancy in the UK, along with some of the highest education results and, apart from the centre of London, the highest GDP per capita of anywhere in the country. It's a popular home for London commuters. Buckinghamshire was the proud home of Roald Dahl and Enid Blyton whose work was inspired by the area. Not to mention being brought to fame by the TV series Vicar of Dibley and Midsomer Murders. It's the dozens of smaller towns and big villages that offer that elusive quality of life that ‘Bucks’ has become so famous for. Well-connected, attractively positioned and with all the amenities you need, there are a wealth of quaint-sounding places to explore. Amersham is a lovely balance of old and new; it's close to the M25 but doesn't feel like it. Bourne End was the home of Enid Blyton and clearly the inspiration for much of her work. Marlow is one of the prettiest towns that exist along the banks of the River Thames. Gerrards Cross is a lovely area and highly desirable. Great Missenden, home of Roald Dahl, is a familiar and friendly town with a variety of housing to suit all.

Demographics

Buckinghamshire has a population of just under 500,000, not including the ceremonial district of Milton Keynes.

It's an ethnically diverse place. High Wycombe is the most diverse town in the country.

Education

Schools in Buckinghamshire have a very good reputation responsible for some of the best results in the country. Wycombe Abbey School, Aylesbury Grammar School and The Royal Grammar consistently come top of nationwide charts. There are nine independents and 34 state secondary schools; the Milton Keynes district has another eight state schools.

The county also has several places of higher education: the University of Buckingham, Buckinghamshire New University and University College Milton Keynes.

Transport

Buckinghamshire is well connected being served by four motorways: the M40, M1, M4 and M25.

Several important A roads also criss-cross the area. Buckinghamshire is served by four main railway lines service, the West Coast, Great Central, Chiltern and Great Western Main Lines. London Heathrow is the nearest airport.

Amenities and shopping

Buckinghamshire is famous for its beautiful open countryside. The Chiltern Hills are an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, but less obvious attractions such as the Stowe Landscaped Gardens, the Ridgeway Path, various National Trust properties and the River Thames shouldn't be overlooked. Buckinghamshire's mix of busy town centres and picturesque high streets means there are plenty of shopping facilities across the county. Aylsebury has both: a small but modern shopping centre and more specialist stores. The Eden Centre in High Wycombe is popular for familiar high street names.

Buckinghamshire has an international sporting presence with the Formula One Silverstone Circuit located on the Buckinghamshire and Northamptonshire border. Dorney Lake (aka 'Eton Dorney') was selected as the rowing venue for the 2012 London Olympics. The county is also home to the world famous Pinewood Studios.
